Abstract

The two authors observed lessons and interviewed teachers who are experts in e-learning in four different countries (Japan, New Zealand, Singapore, and the United Kingdom) in order to gain an overview of current e-learning practices in the teaching of foreign languages at university level. An analysis of lesson observations and interview transcriptions reveals a number of common trends and issues across institutions and contexts including the types of e-learning tools employed, teaching approaches, and levels of institutional support. A number of recommendations for teachers wishing to embrace e-learning are made, especially for those teachers who are, like the authors, relatively non-technical in their outlook.
